Hansen will lead a panel of journalists on a dive into beautiful examples of visual journalism and data visualization from the recent 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
How can we facilitate a creative collaboration in virtual reality through conversation? Inspired by King Curtis's song, Memphis Soul Stew, in which the final song were put together track by track through an interactive conversation between King Curtis and his band. I always wanted that level of collaboration between me and my virtual collaborators. This workshop is a conversational and hands-on workshop that covers various research in attempts to conversational UI, cognitive A.I., cloud computing, and poetic user experience design. A early prototype with functional voice commends using iOT technology will be served as a technical foundation for us to imagine a truly collaborative counterpart in VR.
Harmon will teach the basics of Voice User Interface design, with a focus on rapid prototyping. This session will cover creating scenarios, frameworks, dialog design and creating prototypes to evaluate designs without needing to use technical tools.
